Mother's Day atcs . . .

These are for a swap with a yahoo art group; we
were to make it a Mother's Day theme, use some
ribbon, and hand writing. There's netting, tulle,
a pearly pin, pearly bling, distress ink, patterned
paper--wait, one background is stamped paper--and
collage images from Altered Pages that
have been coated with a little Crystal Effects.
The handwritten sentiment has a coating, too, to
make it more sturdy.

You know, I almost ALWAYS use my own handwriting
on scrapbook pages, but almost NEVER on other
arty stuff. Hmmm.

Anyway, we always gave my grandmas flowers for
Mother's Day, so to me, well, it just isn't
Mother's Day without some flowers! Usually
some to plant in the yard, or a nice pot of
something pretty to set outside on the deck.

These also go along with the following moms
and flowers type challenges, so if you're looking

Really lovely! Wouldn't one of these be great to add to the real flowers, you know, like on one of those plastic spiky things the florists use to put the sender's card? Just a thought - don't get too many so have to get a lot of use out of each one...

Lovely ATC's. Hmm, I know what you mean about handwriting--of course mine is awful, so that's probably why I avoid it.
